This document comprises the entire output for the journal for 1998. The first article is in the form of a modified excerpt from an article by Donna I. Ali of the University of Calgary on "Multiple Intelligences and the Writing Process: Some Implications for Teaching." The article investigates why writing is difficult for some and easy for others, and why the different ways that students process information (have different composing styles) is important to understanding which teaching methods work. The second article is a book review of "The Mozart Effect," a book by Don Campbell. This article discusses how music, specifically that of Mozart and Gregorian chants, is therapeutic for people who suffer from hearing and listening disorders. "Cognitive Skills and Accelerated Learning Memory Training Using Interactive Media Improves Academic Performance in Reading and Math," documents that the effects of former successful applications of accelerated learning, memory, and cognitive skills interactive media training can be replicated in multiple classrooms, thereby validating the applicability of accelerated learning practices. "Reducing Test Anxiety by a Combination of Hypnosis and NLP," argues by way of a case study that a combination of hypnotic induction and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) can significantly reduce test anxiety. (Each article contains references.) (KFT)
